We had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, the pool was perfect for my 6'5" husband and the location was perfect. The only complaint that I have was because of the people that rented the house before us. They had fish in the fridge and it was so potent that we weren't able to use the fridge the entire week we were there because it tainted any food we put in. This is not a fault to Colin at all. He was very helpful and answered any questions I had. I do wish that we could have saved money on food as planned originally though by cooking our own food. The beds were comfortable, the house was clean, and we felt so at home when we were there which was nice after long days at the theme parks and beaches. I highly recommend this house to everyone and we hope to return in the future.

Owner's Response: This is a great review - thank you. Sorry the inside of the fridge smelt of fish on arrival. It has now been thoroughly scrubbed out and doesn't smell of fish any more.

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious villa with a massive pool (pool has a good roll out safety net) The villa is absolutely beautiful & clean. The kitchen is complete with all utensils. The beds very comfy. Three bathrooms & a forth by the pool (very handy). We felt very safe in this wee gated community, this villa is very close to the entrance.. Its a private & quiet location. Also, very close to Champions Gate & the motor way. Very handy for getting to all attractions. Colin rang the day after our arrival to check everything was ok, very pleasant guy and I certainly had no complaints. Only time I needed to contact the management company was to come and take our excess trash away and it was dealt with quickly. This has been my forth holiday to Orlando from UK. This villa definitely didn't disappoint. It made us all want to move here.. I would definitely 110% return to this accommodation and hope to on my nxt holiday. We were a group of 6 adults and 2 teenage girls, all impressed & loved villa. :)

Nice home base

  • 4 of 5

The home more than met our needs for our 2 week stay. It's well equipped with plenty of towels and linens; we ate out mostly so I didn't cook but the kitchen seemed well-stocked. All of the appliances worked well. It's fairly central, we liked the neighborhood, plenty of conveniences near by and easy to navigate to and from. Great pool that we enjoyed as much as we could. Clear instructions for anything you might need regarding the house.

I had a few issues I needed to contact the management company over and was less than impressed with them which put a damper on the stay. Like calling 4 times to deal with an ant infestation (why did it have to be ants?! Hellish critters.). I'm trying to not let that affect my review and it certainly isn't a reflection on the house or owner but is it on the management company. Likewise, the house cleaning could have been better - dirty baseboards, walls, and dust bunnies & food crumbs under furniture. Again, management issues which I'm sure will be addressed.

However, the owners were super helpful and responsive and I was impressed with the attention to details from their end. They are some of the more thoughtful and conscientious owners I've rented from & I appreciated that. In the end, it met our needs very well and was nearly perfect.

Owner's Response: Yes, a lot of thought has gone into the villa. It is very well equipped, well maintained, well located and it does have a great pool. It is very nice to know when this is appreciated - thank you. This is the first time ants have been mentioned in many years of renting and we could find no sign of an infestation but, nevertheless, the villa which is already subject to regular pest control has been treated thoroughly, inside and out, for ants since this family of 2 adults and 5 children stayed. This is also the first time the cleanliness has ever been questioned but, again, the villa has been subject to an additional 'deep clean' in the last few weeks just to be on the safe side. Unfortunately there was also more damage than usual. This has all been rectified too.

Very nice home. Colin was by far the most amazing home owner we have ever dealt with in almost 15 ye

  • 5 of 5

Dolphins Dream is a great house.We were there for a month and have discussed a longer stay in Florida next year. Various family members joined us at different time during our month. Let me tell you just how great Colin is to work with; after 2 of our family had been there one night they said the mattress was not good, they both rolled to the center which wasn't great or sleeping. My husband called the office who contacted Colin. We heard from him in a very short time and he had a new mattress delivered the next day! The pool was a great size and even though it faces sw you only get sun from about 11-3 in March and April because the beautiful trees behind the house shade the pool. The location of the house puts you close to The Disney Parks and once you learn the area you can take shortcuts. Anything you need is close to the house.My only problem is that we have a King size bed and sleeping in a queen wasn't the best. We ranged in age from 7-73 and all loved the house, neighborhood and the boys really loved the Xbox in their room. This house is a jewel. Thanks Colin

Owner's Response: Thank you for this excellent review. We are always in contact with our guests and aim to please. The sun actually reaches the pool deck at around 10.00am in early March though being SW the covered patio never gets the setting sun. However, on the plus side, the pool deck is particularly well sheltered from the cool breeze often present in March/April. Personally, we find a queen bed fine. But in the past we have put two of the twin beds together for couples who particularly like to spread out a lot.
